In an apolitical reflection of remembrance a team of military runners from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and other locations across the US will come together to embark on a 190+ mile journey to honor every New Jersey service member killed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, Operation New Dawn and other conflicts....
Each mile is dedicated to a fallen NJ Hero and their Gold Star Family, and the run team will stop at each Hero Marker (each mile) to present a flag and personalized biographical card to waiting family members, friends and comrades with the goal of creating a 188+ mile memorial trail through New Jersey.
